WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

New Orleans' favorite actress Becky Allen returns to Southern Rep in this hilarious and touching play that was called "the comedy of the year" by The New York Times. Allen stars as sixteen-year-old Kimberly Levaco, who suffers from a rare disease that causes her body to age four-and-a-half times faster than it should. When Kimberly and her family flee their home town under dubious circumstances, Kimberly is forced to reevaluate her life while contending with a hypochondriac mother, a rarely sober father, a scam-artist aunt, her own mortality and, most importantly of all, the possibility of first love. Written by David Lindsey-Abaire.
